    The food is good. the wine/champs selection is great. Lovely staff as well. bad thing is that its in strip mall and feels like your in a strip mall inside as well. WAY too light in there at night.

    Buy a bottle of wine for retail price and pay $7 corkage. Try the cheese plate, the baked brie in puff pastry, and the goat cheese cheesecake. Comfy seating. Helpful staff.

    The baked humboldt fog is sublime. Join the wine club... It's free, you get a discount on the wine and they have a $5 corkage fee on bottles purchased there.

    This place has incredible food and service. The cream of mushroom soup is to die for. The braised short ribs are heavenly!

    It's nice. Buy a bottle at the store. Find a nice table with a couch. They'll open the bottle for a fee. Order some steak, enjoy the evening. ;)

    What a fun place. You can pick any bottle of wine (there are about 300 different ones), pay the price you would pay at the grocery store, then just pay $7 to open it with dinner. Good food, great wi

    A definite must-try - great bistro food with a terrific retail wine selection - you pick the bottle and they uncork it for $5. Best wine deal you will find in any restaurant in the area Read more

    There is more than just great wine. The dessert is to die for and the Nutty Irishman coffee compliments it nicely. The best part is they are open till 1:30am!

    Great wine value. Buy a bottle from the retail section -- pay $7 for corkage. And for the non- winos, they have a full bar and a great beer selection. Cheers!

    best wine selection and deals in North County. Red selection is a tad stronger than white on the value side.
